Paula Deen

Going to Pot

On QVC

EXCLUSIVE

0621_paula_deen_tmz_article_01
If you're lookin' for Paula Deen's pots and pans, you better jump fast, because it looks like her shelf-life on QVC is about to expire.

Deen -- who appears on the product-hawking network to pitch her cookware -- may lose her platform over the "n-word" revelations.

A rep for the network says they have "concerns [over] the unfortunate Paula Deen situation."  The rep adds, "Please know that QVC does not tolerate discriminatory behavior."

Now this is the weird part, which makes QVC sound -- how do you say in English -- as spineless as deep-fried octopus.  "We are closely monitoring these events and we are reviewing our business relationship with Ms. Deen.  In the meantime, we have no immediate plans to have her appear on QVC."

Translation -- They're waiting to see which way the wind blows.

@ Bob, that's not totally accurate, that's for that year. Statistics are usually done on a YEARLY basis, indicating incidence data, not prevalence. So it looks like for that YEAR, Whites and Blacks were very close. All this indicates is that you have many poor people. What it doesn't support is your racist ideology. I find it funny that people bring up laziness etc when it comes to Blacks, but you used us as slaves, so who's the real lazy person here? Many people mooch off the welfare system, not just Blacks, but you want to paint that picture because you want to keep your perceptions

@ Bob, modern medicine was actually derived from the Greeks who were taught by the Egyptians. Much of what is credited to Whites was actually taught to them by these Africans. Secondly, the computer you're typing on available because of a Black man named Dr. Mark Dean, creator of the IBM PC. The internet, Dr. Emmitt McHenry and his group, who worked for the Govt, established the first internet domain service registry that allows you to connect to the internet. The govt wouldn't allow him to hike the fee that he needed so that he could continue to run it, so he had to sell it, sold it to someone White and the govt turned around and allowed the fees to be hiked, selling it later for over 20 billion. This was quite common for Whites to do. Many inventions, or improvements are credited to Whites, when many Blacks were behind them

@ Bob, just because you dismiss it doesn't mean it's not true. We haven't been compensated at all actually. Secondly, affirmative action has not benefitted us really. It's actually helped White women and other minorities than it has for Blacks. Affirmative action doesn't overlook qualifications. All it does is make it the number equal; these people possess the qualifications, but this is a common point racists like to use and it's quite illogical. I'm sorry you were mugged, but you could've easily have been mugged by someone White as well, but then I'm sure you probably wouldn't sit there and generalize the things you're trying to generalize to Blacks right?

@ Bob, the point I was making was that all those statistics indicate is that you have many poor people. They do not support your racist assumptions. And no I think I'll thank the two Blacks who pioneered the AC system and helped improve the Fridge process

@ Bob, many of those civilizations were destroyed by slavery or colonialism, with some corrupt leaders in place and it's been hard for them to regain what they had and yes prior to White invasions, Africa had thriving civilizations.

I guess if she were a rapper and rapped it into lyrics then it would of been OK and could of thrown in a few other expletives. She was wrong but I think we all at one time or another said thing that would be hurtful to one group or another. If you say "no" then your kidding your self. Being in the public she is held to a different standard.
And also her age and where she grew up is a whole other story. I care only about her recipes and not her beliefs or opinions.

I've been to QVC, the environment is 99% one color! So, of course they don't really mind and just want to be on a cowardess bandwagon!!

@ Bob, like I said, if you had been mugged by someone White, I am pretty sure you wouldn't generalize them as you have Blacks. As far as Aff Action is concerned, it doesn't indicate that all those hired under Aff action are illiterate, like I said Aff action has not benefitted Blacks the way you think it has. I've met many illiterate Whites who have been promoted. It's not nonsense if it happens

@AplMacLady You may have a point. As a white guy and I'm keeping you down by responding to your comments. If not for my racism, you could be putting on some clothes and go look for a job this morning. No doubt you'll be expecting reparations.

Uh ... so it's ok for every rap song to contain the "N" word and for black people to use it on a regular basis but someone from another race uses it, it instantly becomes a bad thing???? Where is the outrage over this????? I give Ms. Deen props for admitting she used the word. Who among us would have done that instead of just lying and daring someone to prove that she's actually ever said that?????? This whole thing is much ado about NOTHING!!!! Leave the woman alone!!!!!

I heard that all the folks here that are disturbed by this story will be assembling at noon tomorrow to march over to Jamie Foxx's house and demand an apology for saying he liked killing all the white people in his last movie.
